    SPY SCOOP - all new Boxster (987)

    Sorry, can not confirm the validity though.

    - PORSCHE'S ALL-NEW BOXSTER
    - YES, IT IS NEW!

    THE LAST TIME we saw the next generation Boxster, the headlamps were concealed by dummy units that looked similar to those of the current car. But upon closer inspection it's possible to see new, more oval-shaped lights behind the thin disguise.

    Our pictures show the car testing on the German Nürburgring - for the first time with the roof laid down. They also show that Porsche isn't going to mess around too much with the Boxster's styling. Other visual changes will include wider arches, larger side air-intakes and a flatter rear deck, while all versions of the car will have 19-inch wheels as standard.

    Things are set to get better inside, too, thanks to a new luxury cabin. It will be roomier, and will have a more upmarket dash with a centre console multimedia system from the Cayenne. The current 2.7-litre engine will remain in base cars, but the flagship S will abandon the 3.2 in favour of a 270-HP-plus 3.4-litre machine.

    Yeah! It's nice to have such a big screen when you're driving. Playing your favorite movie, surfing the web, etc...
    19 in Wheels for all models!!! That sounds a bit optimistic. But if it's the case, great!!!
    Fanch.

    different rims than previous protos, too

    the navigation-screen is for blind people isn't it

    Re: SPY SCOOP - all new Boxster (987)

    Hy it will give a 270 HP Boxster S but with a 3.2 litre engine

    Rear and front camouflaged

    Look at the picture very carefully and you'll be able to see it.



    Re: Rear and front camouflaged

    Here's another pic, where we can see the pivets.

    This sounds very exciting - any ideas for realease dates yet? I am due to traqe in my 'S' for a new reg next March, but I don't want to do it unless I get the new, as seen in the pictures, verisions

    thanks

    Re: SPY SCOOP - all new Boxster (987)

    Sorry Stefan there is no certain release date set for the upcoming new Boxster yet; however, with Boxsters' sales being down so much everyone believes that Porsche will release the 987 sooner than later.

    May be next year at Geneva auto show
